PTA Executive Board Invitation

Dear P.S. 205 Family:

Happy New Year! While it may seem a bit early to be talking about next year‘s (2019-2020) PTA Executive Board, we want to ensure everyone is aware of the opportunities available to each of you and the process involved.

PTA Members: Any Parent with a child enrolled in PS205 is automatically a PTA Member. PTA members are always welcome at monthly meetings and encouraged to voice opinions and ask questions. Volunteering for school events and the various committees, is always appreciated.

PTA Executive Board Members: These are Parents that have been elected, by the PTA Members, to executive positions to serve in leadership roles on the board.

The Executive Positions:
* PTA President(s)
* Vice President(s)
* Recording Secretary
* Treasurer
* Corresponding Secretary

All PTA Executive Board positions are held for one year only, starting July 1st and parents need to be nominated, run for the position and be voted into the position. Parents who are currently on the Executive Board are not guaranteed a spot on the Executive Board the following year unless they run and are voted in again. The nomination letter goes out in March, the deadline for nominations is the April PTA meeting and then voting takes place during the May PTA meeting!

In the 2019-2020 school year, our current PTA President will be moving out of the area and will not be running as PTA President. We would like to invite any parent who is interested in running for any position on next year’s Executive Board, including PTA President(s), Vice President(s), Recording Secretary, Treasurer and Corresponding Secretary to contact Amy Kaye at amymkaye@gmail.com to answer any questions about serving on the Executive Board. We invite you to participate during this current year to see what the duties entail for each position.

All PTA members play an important role in our school community and we look forward to new ideas and new people on the 2019-2020 Executive Board. Thank you 2018-2019 PTA Executive Board Members

PS205 2nd Annual STEM Design and Engineering Challenge!

Dear Parents and Guardians of PS205 Students,

                It is time to open our engineering minds for the 2019 school year!  We are proud to present the PS205 2nd annual STEM Design and Engineering Challenge!  For those who may have not participated or do not remember, students completed their grade specific project at home and came back to school the night of the STEM Challenge to test their structures. It was an unbelievable evening of science and engineering!

                The 2nd annual STEM Design and Engineering Challenge will take place Friday, March 8th, 2019 at 5:00pm in the cafeteria.   Every student from kindergarten through fifth grade will have the opportunity to participate in grade specific challenges.

                Projects must be completed at home.  This will not be taking place during class time.  Students will have the next few weeks to design, engineer and then redesign their projects if necessary.  Families are responsible for all materials.  All design projects were chosen to keep cost of materials to a minimum.  The majority of materials for the projects will be everyday items found around your home.   I know you cannot wait to find out what the design and engineering challenges are, so let me introduce to you the STEM challenges for the grades:

K/1st Grade: PAW PATROL BRIDGE DESIGN & ENGINEERING CHALLENGE

2nd/3rd Grade: PAPER TABLE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING CHALLENGE

4th/5th Grade:  ZIPLINE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING CHALLENGE

                Please read through the projects and encourage your child to take advantage of this STEMtastic opportunity.  Each student that participates will receive an award.  Design and engineering awards will be given to those students whose projects are able to succeed in their given challenge.  Please detach the slip below and return to Mr. B by Friday, February 1st, 2019.    

                Thank you families for your support in building up our STEM program and helping to create 21st century designers and engineers!
